Dear Linda & Family,
We knew you and Jim back in the late 70's when I worked at the First and Merchants bank in Denbigh. We have many memories of our fun parties at your home in Bayberry. The staff at the bank were close friends and great work mates. We moved after our son was born in 1982 and still live in Newport News, Hidenwood area near the river. We are saddened to hear of Jim's death. He was still young in our eyes. We wish you and James Prayers, Peace and Blessings during your time to of sadness. Fondly
Dale and Lloyd Scott

Linda and Jim were neighbors during the time when our kids were young. Many memories were created there. I so loved Jim and his crazy sense of humor and his southern accent. He and Linda will always be in my heart. I miss those times and I miss them . ❤

Bill was my first supervisor when I began my Civil Service career. I considered him a mentor and a friend. Although I never met his family I felt as if I knew them well. Bill spoke often of his wife and two sons with such love and devotion. I know my career in government service would not have been successful had he not been there at the start. Praying for peace that passes all understanding for his family and friends.

Bill was a good person. A good husband to a loving wife. A good example to his sons, and a good friend of many people. I was lucky to have had him as a friend for almost 50 years. He will be missed by all who knew him.
